Its like changing Sauerkraut to "Liberty Cabbage" during the war.



Too young for that one, but I do remember "Freedom Fries" from not so long ago. Thanks, you brought a chuckle to my day.

Patriot Act. This bs that takes away liberty that was won by many patriots who gave their lives for. Hiltler should be proud of this. Goebbels could not have scripted a better s**t.

Congress voting on acts which they have not read. How retarded is this. Patriot Act was read by not one senator or congressmen before it was voted on.

Nor was the Affordable Care Act. Is the criticism for only one side or is it equally valid?

One of Obama's 2008 promise's, besides cutting the
deficit in half (instead of doubling it) and lowering
unemployment (instead of raising it) was to close
Gitmo and get rid of the Patriot Act. We found out
he was just joking, being the jokester that he is..

There's another peeve: People who say "I could care less" when they mean "I couldn't care less."



Hilarious. One of my friends, not two days ago, just unloaded on us about this exact pet peeve. Are you actually a PhD student, only pretending to be a DJ on the internet?

What do you think about "I could care less" after hearing the English expression "I should sit down" which of course means "You should sit down".

I have a variety of pet peeves.

The four that come to mind are:

A) Horrific spelling.



for the longest time I couldn't spell 'weird' right for anything, always putting the i before the e. I didnt trust myself and would look it up. It was so wierd [heh heh].

finally I realized you spell it the way it sounds. Duh!

My biggest pet peeve is people asking, "How are we doing today?" as though I am qualified to answer for both of us.
